Be it love with a tragic twist or love with a happily forever after, Bollywood and love have always gone hand in hand. From the amazing chemistry between Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha to the many layers of love between Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, from which films have given us a lot to learn. If you are one of those who have been jilted in love, then these on screen couples might just give you the much needed motivation!

1. Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan 

Rekha’s and Amitabh Bachchan’s on screen chemistry was so sizzling, everyone wanted them to be an off screen couple. Their bond was so sizzling, everyone thought the two were seeing each other for real. Unfortunately, Jaya Bahaduri came into the picture and their love story was immortalised only on the big screen as well.

2. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan 

Ever since I saw these two killing it in Dhoom 2, I knew they were going to be the hottest on screen couple ever. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is hands down the most gorgeous woman out there while Hrithik Roshan is the human version of a Greek God. Put the two of them together and words cannot be used to describe them, right?

3. Madhubala and Dev Anand 

Arguably the most popular actors of their time, Madhubala and Dev Anand were the ultimate on screen couple. With their brilliant acting skills, the two gave the word love a new meaning. Despite being from the black and white era of cinema, their movies were some of the most soulful ones in the world of Bollywood.

4. Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt

She is as cute as a button, he is as hulky as can be. What more could you want with this perfect pair? Perhaps the fact they are friends in real life is what makes their on screen chemistry stand out so much more.

5. Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone 

This pair is not only killing it on the big screen, they are giving everyone major couple goals off screen as well! Sanjay Leela Bhansali realised their value as a pair early on and they are now one of the most sought after pairs in the industry. Any guesses why?

If you think life dealt you a losing hand in terms of love, then these on screen pairs are exactly what you should watch to feel better. If you think we missed out on some other pairs, comment and let us know!

Kangana Ranaut-Journalist Justin Rao Public Spat - Everything You Need To Know, Judgementall Hai Kya promotions Controversy, Kangana Ranaut public spat with PTI reporter, Entertainment journalists boycott Kangana Ranaut, Kangana Ranaut Justin Rao, Ekta Kapoor on Kangana Justin Rao issue, Kangana Ranaut argument, Kangana Ranaut Rajkumar Rao movie, alaji Motion Pictures official statement, Mango Bollywood

More often than not, actress Kangana Ranaut is in the news not for her films, but for her controversial statements.  On various occasions, the actress took a dig at several B-town celebs, including Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. The actress has recently been all over the internet for her public verbal spat with a journalist, Justin Rao.  

As a part of promotions for Judgementall Hai Kya, the makers of the film held a press conference.  In attendance were Kangana Ranaut, Rajkummar Rao, Ekta Kapoor and several members of the media fraternity.  At this event, the Queen actress got into a heated argument with journalist Justin Rao, alleging him of criticising her film Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi and of running a smear campaign against her. 

Justin Rao, in his defence, denied tweeting anything about the film.  This verbal spat did not go well with the media fraternity, particularly the Entertainment Journalists’ Guild of India, which decided to boycott Kangana Ranaut. 

The media fraternity decided to hold a meeting with Ekta Kapoor, the producer of the film and demanded a public apology from the makers and the actress.  In turn, Balaji Motion Pictures released an official statement urging the media not to hinder the efforts which went into making Judgementall Hai Kya.

“To whomsoever it may concern: A lot is being reported about the debate that ensued between our film JudgeMentall Hai Kya’s actor and journalist Justin Rao, at the film’s song launch event on July 7th, 2019. Unfortunately, the event took an unpleasant turn. While the people involved in it fairly held their own perspectives but because it happened at the event of our film, we, as the producers, would like to apologize and express regret for this untoward incident.  We would like to maintain that our intention was not to disrespect or hurt anyone’s sentiments. Our film JudgeMentall Hai Kya releases on July 26th and we urge the media to not let this one incident hamper the team effort that has gone behind making the film,” the statement read. 

Though the makers of the film apologised for the incident, Kangana Ranaut remained adamant and made it clear she will not apologise for the incident.  Furthermore, the actress released a video via her sister’s Twitter account, in which she accused the media of being anti nationalist and also alleged they are paid to write against her.  In her fiery address, she also urged the media to ban her as she does not want them to earn bread at her expense.  

Quite a fight, we must say.  What are your opinions about this issue?  Comment below and let us know.

Hindi cinema forms a very significant part of life and society in India.  We cherish the glamour, style and everything else about tinsel town. While the actors and villains manage to garner all our love and admiration, the directors behind all of this often go unnoticed.  Bollywood is home to many such wonderful directors. Here is a list of directors who helped bring out the best in Bollywood.

 

1) Rajkumar Hirani

Born in 1962, Rajkumar Hirani is an Indian director, writer and editor.  He is widely acknowledged as the most successful and critically acclaimed filmmaker in the industry.  He made his debut with Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. in 2003 and ever since, there was no looking back for him.  He proved his directorial capabilities to the world with films like 3 Idiots (2009,) PK (2014) and Sanju (2018,) which were all blockbusters.  3 Idiots, till date, remains one of the most loved films of India.  With PK, Rajkumar Hirani touched the most controversial topic of religion and yet emerged successful.  Not just commercial hits, but his films are also rich in content. Rajkumar Hirani is often referred to as a path breaking director in the industry.  He has won 11 Filmfare Awards till date.

 

2) Sanjay Leela Bhansali

Regarded as every actor’s delight, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a director, producer, screenwriter and music director.  We must say, there is no creative mastermind like Bhansali in the Country. He made his directorial debut with Khamoshi: The Musical (1996) and for his very first film, he received the Filmfare Critics Award for the Best Film.  If you have watched Bajirao Mastani (2015) or Padmaavat (2018,) you will know this man can create magic.  With jaw dropping sets and attention to every single detail, every movie by Bhansali makes for a wholesome cinematic experience.  Not just a genius director, he is also a gifted musician. Songs like Laal Ishq, Ghoomar and Mohe Rang Do Laal prove just that.  If you think Bhansali can only make period dramas, you should watch his masterpiece, Black (2005.)  Bhansali never fails to impress.

 

3) Anurag Kashyap

Born in 1972, Anurag Kashyap is an Indian film director, producer, actor, writer and editor known for his work in Hindi cinema.  His directorial debut, Black Friday, released in 2007 to widespread critical appreciation.  This man is known for his depiction of the darker side of life.  He stays as far as possible from the stereotypical glitz and glamour and prefers content rich films.  Kashyap’s two part crime drama, Gangs Of Wasseypur (2012,) managed to garner the love of audience and critics all throughout and still remains to be the nation’s favourite film in the gangster genre.  The Government of France awarded him the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters) in 2013 for his contribution to cinema.

 

4) Sriram Raghavan

Sriram Raghavan is an Indian filmmaker and screenwriter who rose to fame with the feature film Ek Hasina Thi (2004.)  Since then, he has been entertaining us with his stellar work like Johnny Gaddar (2007,) Agent Vinod (2012,) and Badlapur (2015.) However, his latest work, Andhadhun (2018,) a suspense thriller, got him the name and recognition he deserves.  With Andhadhun, Sriram Raghavan proved to the world his writing and directing capabilities.  This film was praised by not just critics, but also by audiences across the globe.

 

5) Shoojit Sircar

Shoojit Sircar is one of the most coveted directors of B-town.  He made his debut with the film Yahaan (2005.)   He gave us some of the most memorable and content rich films.  His films Vicky Donor (2012) and Piku (2015) stand among the most loved films of the Country.  His recent film, October (2018,) is another proof of his directorial brilliance.  Sircar’s craftsmanship breathes life into every film he makes.  We suggest you never miss his movies.

Anushka Sharma – 5 Best Performances By The Actress

Anushka Sharma - 5 Best Performances By The Actress,Mango Bollywood,5 Awesome Performances of Anushka Sharma,Top 5 performances of Anushka Sharma,Top 5 Brilliant Performances By Anushka Sharma,What is the best movie of Anushka Sharma?,Best Films of Anushka Sharma

When Anushka Sharma, an actress without any connections to the Bollywood world, made a splash opposite Ranveer Singh in Band Baaja Baaraat, she made everyone sit up and take notice.  Every movie in which the vivacious and bubbly Sharma acted after her first one—she made sure she left a lasting impression.  Here is looking at some of the best performances by Anushka Sharma to date:

1. Band Baaja Baaraat

 

Playing an effervescent and bubbly girl in this rom com, Anushka Sharma shot to fame because she played her true vivacious self on the silver screen.  Despite competing with already established actresses for this role, Sharma did so well, she won an award despite actresses like Deepika Padukone and Kajol also being nominated that year.

2. NH10

While Band Baaja Baaraat showed Anushka Sharma’s bubbly and fun side, NH10 showed how the actress could play a serious role with ease.  Based on the concept of honour killing, this movie showed how versatile an actress Sharma is.  Playing the role of a woman on the hunt of people who killed her husband, Anushka brought out her fierce side really well.  Watch it now, if you haven’t already.

3. PK

Not only was PK the movie in which Anushka Sharma gave one of her best performances, it was also the highest grossing film when it released in 2014.  Standing on the 70th position as of 2018, this movie also had Aamir Khan playing a crucial role. Anushka plays the role of a journalist who, while in the beginning tries to use Aamir Khan’s character for her own good, ends up helping him for real instead.  Telling the story of an alien, played by Aamir Khan, who tries to find his way home from Earth, this film was a satirical take on God, godmen and the various religious beliefs humans have.

4. Jab Tak Hai Jaan

Despite being a highly criticised movie, Anushka Sharma’s brilliant performance was lauded and appreciated.  Not only did she steal Katrina Kaif’s thunder, she also stood her ground with her charm and charisma, despite being paired opposite Shah Rukh Khan!  Borrowing cues from her character in Band Baaja Baaraat, Sharma proved, even with a bad script, she could bring her A game to the table. Showing that love has no limits or boundaries, this movie gave Sharma the chance to shine and sparkle.

5. Ae Dil Hai Mushkil

This movie saw Anushka Sharma grow and blossom into a serious actress.  Quite literally owning the screen and the story, Sharma made people both hate and fall in love with her character because of the way she acted.  Anushka’s acting skills in this movie were par excellence. Her character, Alizeh, made people realise the importance of accepting there are different kinds of love in the world and if you feel a particular way about a person, it isn’t necessary they reciprocate the same!

Films About Women Which Inspire You

Published

on

Films About Women Which Inspire You,Mango Bollywood,Latest Bollywood Movie Updates,Inspirational Movies for Women,Bollywood Movies About Women,Inspire Films about Women,Best Girl Power Movies,5 Movies about Inspiring Women,Movies About Female Inspiration

Not all Bollywood movies are about a scantily clad woman dancing around trees and desperately angling for the hero’s love. There are some movies with such thoughtfully written characters, they not only entertain you, but also inspire you to be better. Check out the list here:

1. No One Killed Jessica

Based on the horrific murder of a bartender called Jessica Lal in Delhi, No One Killed Jessica revlves around two women, played by Rani Mukherji and Vidya Balan. While the film does showcase everything about how women stand together no matter what, it also shows how women change based on their circumstances. Vidya Balan plays the role of a fierce journalist trying to right a wrong by avenging her sister’s death. The message at the end of the film? If you really want to achieve something, your gender shouldn’t stop you from doing so.

2. Mother India

Mother India was the first movie of its kind to showcase women in all their glory. At a time when Bollywood wasn’t interested in showing off a woman’s strength, this movie did just that, especially when it comes to protecting her children. Creating a phenomenon the movie it released, Mother India was also one of the first Bollywood movies in 1977 to make it to the Oscars.

3. Bhumika

The year 1977 was one for great cinema and for stories centered around the lives of women. Telling the tale of a Marathi actress, this film is a collaboration of multiple problems faced by the actress during her career. In the 20th century, this movie was an eye opener and a true testament to the struggles an actress faces in order to be recognised for her craft and not gender. Not surprisingly, we aren’t the only ones who thought so because Bhumika won not one, but two National Awards when it released!

4. Queen

Despite being from the 21st century, some of our traditions and values are still from the 19th century. We refuse to believe women can make their own choices and if they are mistreated, they shouldn’t change their opinion because society asks them to. In Queen, Kangana Ranaut as Rani saw us wanting for more. From the moment she went on her honeymoon alone to the moment she told her fiance she didn’t want to get married after all, this movie was a story of liberation all the way through. It left us feeling liberated from years of pressure and societal obligations, making us realise that if we really want to, we can give women all the power they need to live life on their own terms.

5. NH10

What makes this movie stand out so much is, not only did Anushka Sharma produce this film, she also starred in it and wrote the script. On a path to revenge, Anushka Sharma’s character fought and killed the family of the man who murdered her husband. Showing how far a woman when it comes to avenging what went wrong, this movie is an ode to the strength and willpower of women.
